Time for the things that might not always be so good when being in a relationship with someone from a different country. If you have experienced anything else or have other points to bring up – I would like to know in the comments!
- Distance… There’s gonna be times where we’ll have to be far away. Me at home and him at home. But then again we can always make the choice to be in the same place. To go with the other person or stay with them. Sometimes it might be good to miss each other as well. It can make us remember how much we care for each other and appreciate the other person the way they deserve – sometimes people forget that when they’re with each other almost every day.
- Sacrifices. There will be times where you’ll have to choose to sacrifice different moments and traditions and things you are used to – so you can be a part of the other persons life. It obviously has to be a two-way thing for it to last.
- Language. There has been times where it’s been hard for me to explain exactly how I feel, and I have experienced getting frustrated because I just can’t seem to give the words I’ll be trying to say the same meaning as I would in Norwegian. There’s also been times where I’ve been trying for so long to find the word I’m looking for, haha. But hey – I’m speaking two languages and for anyone being from another country and learning english or coming somewhere you can only speak english, it’s impressive!
- Differences. Growing up in a completely different country – then meeting and getting together in our twenties can bring on a lot of things we didn’t really think about. Our thoughts about the future, goals, aspirations – it’s something you can never expect from someone, it has to come from the heart. You can never make anyone want the same as you or have the same mindset, but if you’ve grown up in the same country or area it might be an easier understanding at times.
